When Should I Worry -Information for Parents

The 'When should I worry' leaflet is designed to provide parents with helpful advice on the self-management of common childhood illness and has been designed to be used in Primary Care consultations. It also provides additional advice around antibiotics and when to have your child assessed by a GP or nurse or what to do if the illness is severe.

This is for use for all children over 3 months old (please be aware that children under 3 months old who are unwell should always be assessed by a GP or nurse as they can respond differently to infections)

As with all advice, if after reading you are still worried about your child, please continue to seek advice via your GP, 111 or by calling 999 in an emergency.
